Making spirits bright...

Good morning! 

OMGosh it is so freakin' cold here! Last night we got down to 2 degrees, and my fingers are actually cold while I sit here and type... but, still no snow so I'm trying not to complain. :)

I got a card made for this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at The Greeting Farm, which is All That Sparkles. I hadn't inked up this Anya Strolls stamp yet and there is a part of me that really enjoys altering them a bit to work with that bag stamp from the Dress Me Anya set. So I wiped away the leash and the pup then re-drew in the missing part of her leg. Her hand positions were perfect for a few festive shopping bags and I even added a bit of tissue paper to them for a fun finishing touch. I added sparkle to her bags and outfit with a Stardust glitter pen and topped the card off with a sprinkling of bling to really hit home with the challenge. All in all I really enjoyed putting this card together and it makes me want to see some new Big Time Anyas joining the TGF family sooner rather than later... fingers crossed!

Ok, I might have to go hop back under the covers for a bit to really warm up. Hope you all are managing to stay warm and toasty.

So cute. It should have another woman on it to represent you and your mom shopping together.

Amy she is so cute with her little gloves you have on her. After all when a girl goes shopping she must be warm yet still have the ability to carry all her shopping goodness. lol.... I love this card and all the colors you have used on it. Very festive indeed. Congratulations on winning last week's TGF challenge. Can't wait to see what stamp you get and use. We were -3 last night and I don't intend to even open my front door today. lol. Stay warm my friend. Hugs Lisa
